Over time, the outside of buildings begins to deteriorate. This may happen as the materials age, or due to pollution, fire or water damage. We offer external refurbishment and facade refurbishment so you can keep your properties looking their best and safe for those who use them.
So, what is external refurbishment? It can take many forms. You may want any of the following things fixed: chimney stacks, gutters, roofs, pipes, fire escapes and external staircases, fences and maintenance to any plants growing on your building. As any building maintenance worker will tell you, all of these things need regular checks to make sure the building is safe.
Some people will want their buildings modernised, and others will want to uphold the building’s historic features. Refurbishment often includes adding or updating parts of a building: for example, someone owning a Tudor cottage might want to keep the thatched roof but add in modern gutters to keep the place dry and pleasant.
To completely modernise the outside of a building will require cooperation between refurbishers, builders, architects and owners. When this happens, buildings can gain all kinds of useful amenities such as accessible entrances for wheelchair users, or balconies for people looking to make the most of their space.
Most importantly, though, we need to keep buildings safe. Whether they’re for homes or businesses, buildings need to meet certain codes and have things like fire escapes and sturdy structures. External refurbishers may need to work with internal refurbishers to make sure that everything runs smoothly and safely for the benefit of all involved. Any damage or negligence could result in anything from lawsuits to loss of life. In less drastic cases, a lack of refurbishment may cause leaks and subsequent damage to the property through roofs with missing tiles or insufficient or broken gutters.

Beautifully designed and intelligently engineered buildings can be left for years with little to no external maintenance, leaving materials to weather and decay. We provide a complete building envelope refurbishment service from the roof down to the ground. We use sensitive restoration methods to restore, preserve and maintain buildings for many years to come.
Our sympathetic building restoration and refurbishment solutions are designed to restore weathered and decaying buildings with maximum sensitivity and integrity. We specialise in retaining the value of materials, working in-situ rather than replacing, to help manage costs and impact to the building.
From paint removal and masonry repointing to façade repairs and redecoration, we specialise in sensitive façade cleaning, restoration, and protection solutions for tall and high-rise, historic, challenging to access building façades. With each elevation receiving a customised treatment we have tailored solutions for your building and budget and appropriate access solutions to suit your needs with scaffolding, cradle, rope access, and MEWPS.
The work provided by Building Transformation was excellent. Their product and building exteriors knowledge is detailed, comprehensive and practically applied to the client’s needs. They offer a professional, detailed, high-quality and customer- focused service which meets the short, medium and long-term needs of the client, and provides practical, cost-realistic advice.
Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site. The quality and level of support provided by Building Transformation is priceless to any client/contractor.
The approach and advice on setting up the works at the Wolverhampton Civic Centre were first-class. Building Transformation’s attention to detail was excellent and the RAMS were followed meticulously to every detail. We were delighted with the works and service, and would not hesitate to use them again, nor hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.
A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight to deal with the traffic issues, while the site remained open throughout. The project took around three weeks to complete and went exceptionally well; the Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work round dynamic operational issues. The clean was of a high standard and has made a significant different to the image of the building. A very difficult job done well.
I am very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. Also the level of cleaning provided and attention to detail is much appreciated.
I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping slowly win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Needless to say Building Transformation is a name that is now becoming known and respected.
Building Transformation gave great communication throughout our projects.
It will be my pleasure to recommend Building Transformation.
Just signed off the job with Richard. Myself, the bosses and the tenant all are very pleased with the work. It definitely looks rejuvenated just a case of painting the concrete window surrounds in the new year to finish it off. Have found your company and staff very professional and helpful which has facilitated a project with minimal inconvenience and disruption to our in situ tenants.
I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far. Dave and the team have done a great job.
I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.
At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.
We are very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. The operatives on site were very professional and communicated to us at all times.
The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.
Thank you for all the work that you carried out in cleaning the outside of our school. We are delighted with the results. You have managed to completely remove heavy staining from many areas around the building.
We found you extremely easy to work with: your quote was reasonable, you carried out the work quickly and you were very flexible in terms of timings.
We will definitely be working with you again! Your engineers were very polite and accommodating every time they visited site and have done a first class job. I will be recommending Building Transformation to everyone!
